Kings XI Punjab will host Sunrisers Hyderabad in Mohali in what will be match number 33 of the Indian Premier League. The match will begin at 8 pm IST on Friday. It will be telecast on the Sony network and commentary will be available in both English and Hindi. You can also catch the online LIVE streaming of the game on Hotstar.com.
With just three wins from seven matches, the home side is currently placed fifth, one short of where they would at least like to be at the end of the league format. The David Warner-led Hyderabad have won four of eight games so far and have shared the points in a rain-abandoned outing against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday.
In their home match against Punjab this season, Hyderabad secured a five-run win while defending a modest total of 159 runs. Also check-Kings XI Punjab vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Live Score, Match 33, Indian Premier League, 2017
The visitors have an equally potent bowling attack, with Purple Cap holder medium pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar (16 wickets) and young Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan (10 wickets) leading the department.
On the other hand, Kings XI Punjab will be hoping for another sublime score from opener Hashim Amla, who can take the attack to the opposition camp.
KXIP scored a near-200 total (198) against the Mumbai Indians with Amla scoring a terrific hundred and skipper Glenn Maxwell also hitting some lusty blows.
The hosts will, however, need to rethink on their bowling strategy with the likes of medium pacers Sandeep Sharma and Mohit Sharma failing to provide the early breakthroughs although Axar, with his left-arm spin has been economical in the middle overs. (with wires inputs)
